Just wondering, in the university where I work, students are due to send in payment for university halls of residence. I’ve been told to ask students paying by credit card to only fax us their credit card details as the safest method out of phone, fax, email and post.
Is it really the safest means of transmitting CC details to our office? The students are all from Europe and all their information usually reaches us in fairly anonymous envelopes, nothing to indicate that payment of any sort is included within. I can remember briefly reading in a PC magazine a while ago that faxes can be easily intercepted too if someone wants to.
